The NRC Word-Emotion Association Lexicon is available for use through a research license. The lexicon is a list of English words and their associations with eight emotions (anger, fear, anticipation, trust, surprise, sadness, joy, and disgust) and two sentiments (negative and positive). The annotations were done manually through Amazon's Mechanical Turk for more than 14,000 common English words. If you are interested in obtaining the lexicon, then send an email to: saif.mohammad at nrc-cnrc.gc.ca. Please put "NRC word-emotion association lexicon" in the subject line. You can simply reply to this email too, but please do not respond to the whole list as that will inconvenience others.
